So I thought I would post some of my thoughts that have been running through my head recently. I know I'm not a very good blogger, as I haven't really posted any written updates, only photos. For those of you who keep bugging me about it....sorry about that. I actually don't like writing on here that much. For the randoms who keep leaving comments and I don't know you....you can stop bugging me about publishing them, because I won't publish them, especially when the comments are rude and inappropriate.
Onto what's happening here.
It's flipping cold. Yes, everyone else in Namibia is sweating like a pig, but I'm stuck on the coast with my teeth chattering. Sometimes I think it isn't fair, then I travel inland and stick to everything I touch. It's a disgusting feeling. I suppose I'll just have to bundle up and deal.
I did laundry this morning. I got up super early to wash my undies by hand and hang them on the line so as to catch the 10 minutes of sun we *might* get today. Hey wait...they sun is kind of out right now. No wait, it's gone. What a tease.
There is a woman visiting the TRC right now who I've met a zillion times. Everytime we meet, she looks at me like "where do I know this girl from?" then promptly introduces herself again. She just doesn't get it! Now I just go along with it. "Nice to meet you!" Strange.
Oh, my computer is now alive and kicking again! Actually, the whole process didn't take more than 3 days, and that's including the travel time it took when I sent it to Windhoek. There was some system file corruption. No big deal, they just wiped out my hard drive and I promptly put all my files back on that I have on my external hard drive.
I've been reading all the updates on the VA Tech tragedy. It's so horrible to think about. I had many friends who went there, and I visited them on a number of occasions. My heart goes out to all the victims families and friends. It certainly is an odd feeling to open up the Namibian newspaper and see a 5 page spread all about Virginia.
Term 1 is winding down now. School closes on Friday until the end of May. I have the next week to take it easy here in Swakopmund, then I'm off to Cape Town for a few days. I am really excited and am looking forward to the break.
Life is great here!
